Re: It's Ars Tech's turn to bang the IPv4 exhaustion drum

This article reminded me that I really needed to stop relying on a tunnel over my backup DSL line for IPv6 and spend the time to get my own ISP on the road to deploying IPv6.
Step 1: Request address space from ARIN
Took <1 day to get a reply that we'd be getting the space that day, a few more hours to receive a /32. That was easy.
Step 2: Get set up for IPv6 peering and transit
Took 30 minutes for Equinix to tell me that all I need to do is fill out a form and I'm all set. Even quicker than ARIN.
Took a little over 2 days for my transit provider (Abovenet) to tell me that they don't offer IPv6 transit and don't know when they will.
Native IPv6 isn't important enough for me to spend money on a new transit provider on yet, so I guess maybe next year we'll try this again and see what's changed. In the meantime, I need to upgrade some routers (including some that went EOL before IPv6 support came along) anyway.
